I suppose my current goal set for the 2018 Reading Challenge is actually a little wimpy, being that it is exactly the same as last year's (how is that a challenge?!)... But since I just barely wrapped up my 150th book on 12/30/17, I feel like setting that number any higher would be a bit silly! I'll bump it up a bit later, if it looks like I might be able to squeeze a few more in ;)
